advanced to the second round of the big dance and we wish him the best of luck. of course that's not the only big sports story this morning. dave ross joins us with a look at today's sports headlines. >> tony, we love this new washington capitals team. do we know everything we need to know about the new goaltender. everybody said that was the big concern, can we stop pucks and keep them out of the net when we need to in the playoffs. couldn't do it last year against montreal. this year we put in a 23-year- old kid, michael newberg. his nickname is neuvie. but if you don't know anything about him, here is what you need to know. he's really, really good and he's been on point for the first five games against the new york rangers. no pressure from this kid. and i think here is the reason why. he was in the ahl with the hershey bears and they won the culver cup in 2009. he was named the mvp of that
7:55 am
tournament. so all of the caps say this kid feels no pressure. i've talked to him personally in the locker room and it's like you and i. he's not that big of a guy. he's just a normal guy. and he's a stonewall in the net. he stopped 140 of 148 shots in those five games. he's really good. you don't believe me. listen to his teammate. >> i think people who haven't really watched him play a whole lot, he makes plays look routine most of the time and he's just amazing. he's a good goalie to go all the way and right now he's our good goalie. >> we didn't give him a chance and he was great. then he would cover pucks up and he wouldn't allow rebounds and then we would get chances to change and slow it down when we wanted to do that. a lot of people don't know him name too much outside of our circles, but he's a heck of a goalie. >> i think the rangers know his name now. >> i have to tell you, i didn't even know how to pronounce his
7:56 am
name until a few weeks ago. >> michael newberg. and how abour nats playing better baseball yesterday in pittsburgh. and some power from the lineup. and michael morris, another young guy and he'll be playing leftfield a lot. big kid, did really well in spring training, carrying that over to the beginning of the new year. and then adam laroche comes through with a home run. he's a former pirate so that had to feel good yesterday in pittsburgh. and then again jayson werth. he hasn't been hit a a lot with that huge contract. but he can do this. can you do this? because i can't. and they call this a hose. that's a hose from rightfield. on a line, to end the game. and i like the celebration. nats win 6-3. let's hope they continue this streak playing better baseball. and it's early but we still have some optimistic signs for
7:57 am
the rest of the year. >> >> there is still 150 games left. >> it's crazy. >> it's forever. >> hershey bears are the sweetest name in sports. the hershey bears. >> you want them to dress up like bears. >> they are cuddly. allergy sufferers are still feeling the pain. coming up after 8:00. >> the best ways to treat your symptoms. on friday she'll become princess katherine. how life will change for katherine middleton in the next hour. stay with us.

8:02 am
again later today. currently 60 at reagan national. humidity is 100%. winds out of the north at 0 mile-per-hour so they are not out of the north. shifting out of the south later today, about 10-15 miles per hour and that will pump in the morning temperatures. so morning fog this afternoon and a lot of sunshine. 85 the daytime high in washington. 87 in fredericksberg and 83 in hagerstown. this is not typical for this time of year and these unseasonably warm temperatures will continue for the next couple of days. we'll have more details in minutes. >> not a good hair day. >> thank you, tucker. well a two-year traffic nightmare started this morning. >> it is bridge reconstruction project along new york avenue and sarah simmons is live in northeast with more on how it's going to affect drivers. sarah, good morning. >> reporter: well good morning, tony and allison. it will be bad over the next couple of years. there are people out here today, traffic is a little bit lighter than usual because of the holiday, but you can imagine over the next two years this project is going to last,

4 or 5,000 cars every hour during the rush hour. it's about 90,000 cars a day. and we're trying to reduce that. >> reporter: and so far they don't have 2,000 people that have signed up so they are still taking people. you have to prove that -- with a driver's license and that you travel through this area. so there is a process that you do have to go through. there are also alternate routes as well that you can take. we have a list of those as well as the information about this bridge program at our website, myfoxdc.com. that's the latest out here in northeast. now to lauren with the latest on your traffic around the region this morning. lauren. >> thank you, sarah. and the delay right now beginning around 9th street so not bad. but the real test is tomorrow when we are dealing with the full amount of traffic. today just coming off the holiday weekend so seeing a little bit of lighter volume out there this morning. we do have a new accident reporting in prince george's county, route 5 at coventry way. watch for police and fire and rescue at the scene.
